Lawrence Area Convention of States Action


Lawrence & Douglas County
    Convention of States Action Grassroots Meeting   

Hello Lawrence Area Patriots,

Happy New Year Patriots!!! I think we’d all agree that 2022 was a difficult and disappointing year in politics. Everything from the dismal election results to the ever-increasing and unscrupulous overreach by the federal government, has weighed heavy on all of us.

   Sometimes it can feel as though there’s no hope of ever turning things around and restoring our country to what the founders intended it to be. Of course, it’s an uphill battle and only the most determined people will continue to fight the good fight.

   However, even the strongest among us sometimes needs to hear encouraging words, needs to be reminded of the few victories we've enjoyed along the way, and needs to hear from really great leaders who’ll inspire us to hang in there and to do even more.

   Therefore, our next meeting will feature a healthy dose of the much-needed encouragement intended to inspire hope in our hearts for the future of America. We will see the COS Action “Year in Review” video and also watch a true patriot speak words that'll give us renewed hope and direction. Lt. Col. Allen West was a featured speaker at the Reclaiming Liberty Summit in Orlando back in October 2022. I believe after watching him speak you will be as motivated as I was and that you'll come away with a newfound gusto.

   The meeting will be held on Monday, January 16, 2023, at Johnny's West restaurant, located at 721 Wakarusa Dr. Lawrence, KS 66049. Social time begins at 6:00pm and the meeting starts promptly at 6:30pm. Please join us and bring a friend and RSVP to me.

For America!
Susan Parker District Captain

Physicians for COS

The diagnosis is clear.

We have a growing cancer today known as the Obamacare. As a result physicians are no longer free to practice medicine.

No profession feels the full force of the federal government more than physicians. The medical profession is the most highly regulated profession in the United States. The practice of medicine is controlled, taxed, and regulated to the point of being destroyed by the heavy hand of the federal government.

Physicians are told how to bill, how much to charge, and how to treat patients. They are mandated to use expensive electronic medical records. The federally enacted HIPPA (Health Information Privacy and Portability Act) makes the communication between physicians and atients burdensome, inefficient,and expensive. Every physician is required by federal mandate to register with the government to obtain an NPI (national provider identifier.) We are required by federal law to obtain and pay for a license to prescribe medication through the DEA, which is separate from our state licensure.

This heavy hand of government not only oversees the largest federal health bureaucracy ever created, but by extension reaches into every state, every city, and every small town to regulate how every licensed physician practices the art of medicine and how citizens obtain care.

The treatment is also clear.

The prescription for a cure was written into our constitution by our founders. Article V of our constitution allows for the states to call for a convention of states to limit the power and jurisdiction of the federal government through the proposal of constitutional amendments. Physicians should be the strongest supporters of this brilliantly-crafted states’ rights tool placed into our constitution by our founders.

I urge my fellow American physicians to join with me in supporting an Article V Convention of States to take back control of the practice of medicine. It’s the only way that we can return the practice of medicine back to the intimate relationship between a doctor and patient without interference by the heavy hand of a distant, national government.
